Review:

Otros Saberes is an avant-garde report from the frontlines of knowledge. By foregrounding the knowledge produced by some of the most innovative indigenous and Afro-descendant movements in Latin America at present, this volume demonstrates that activists and grassroots intellectuals are often more attuned today than academics to the kinds of questions that need to be urgently asked in the face of unprecedented ecological and social crisis. Not only that, the volume provides vivid first-hand accounts of the promises and tensions of collaborative methodologies bridging academic and activist worlds, furthering our grasp of the elusive goal of genuine collaboration. LASA and the project visionaries have accomplished an incredible theoretico-political feat in the best tradition of engaged scholarship. Arturo Escobar, author of Territories of Difference: Place, Movements, Life, Redes Otros Saberes is an intriguing collaborative volume written in English, Spanish, and Portuguese by academic and non-academic intellectuals. It goes well beyond normative definitions of knowledge; also beyond thought it offers food for political epistemic action. Marisol de la Cadena, UC Davis --pre-publication blurb

By focusing on the processes entailed in community-centered collaborative research, Otros Saberes offers students and researchers a significant roadmap. The six Latin American collaborative projects describe how indigenous and Afro-descendant activists, cultural workers, community members, organizations, and scholars exchanged and produced knowledge. --Hilda Llorens, Journal of Anthropological Research, vol. 70, 2014

Book Description SAR Press, United States, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Latin American Studies as an integral and fully recognised field of scholarly inquiry only exists for those accustomed to viewing the region from north of the US-Mexican border. Although never completely stable or uncontested, Latin American Studies had its first heyday between the mid-1960s and late 1980s, at the height of the Cold War, when the region became the focus of intense geopolitical contention. While two decades later it is clear that Latin American Studies has remained vibrant in the face of such challenges, its resilience is due to innovation, rather than to a merely reactive defense of deeply engrained premises and institutional practises.
